    No it does not need to be used.. you can use...

    buf[80]

    for example
    Code:
    int main()
    {
      char buf[80];
       printf(" type in a string\n");
       fgets(buf,80,stdin);
       printf(" your string is %s ",buf);
       return 0;
    }
    Note that you need to use the "string.h"
    Only the strong survives.

    >>Note that you need to use the "string.h"
    For what? The only header needed for your short example code is stdio.h.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
